Vernal Equinox

Thursday, March 20 marked the official first day of Spring, otherwise known as the Spring Equinox, when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. While many believe the equinox has some sort of magical property that allows people to balance a broom or an egg on its ends, these are actually tricks that can be done throughout the year. Although the equinox has no special balancing properties, it does bring with it new life – including more sunlight, spring flowers, and animals’ eggs hatching!
